Sam Smith Hates His Own Oscar Performance, Calls It 'Worst Moment' of His Life

'Singing was horrible. I hated every minute,' the British singer said of performing the song, which won him the Best Original Song Award at the Sunday, February 28 ceremony.

AceShowbiz - Turns out, Sam Smith didn't really enjoy the 2016 Academy Awards on Sunday night, February 28. He did take home the Best Original Song Award for "Writing's on the Wall" from "Spectre" at the event, but the Brit admitted that he's not a fan of his own performance of the song.

"It was the worst moment of my life," said the 23-year-old star in a chat with BBC after the show. "Singing was horrible. I hated every minute."

Smith sounded pretty fine crooning the ballad, which he co-wrote with frequent collaborator Jimmy Napes. Though so, some Twitter users seemed to agree with the singer that his performance wasn't good enough.

"I'm sorry but Sam smith sounded terrible," one user wrote. "It's already a terrible song, but being pitchy is definitely making it special," another added.

Smith was hardly the only Song of the Year nominee who performed at the Sunday event. Lady GaGa wowed fans with a powerful performance of "Til It Happens to You" from "The Hunting Ground" while The Weeknd tackled his "Earned It" from "Fifty Shades of Grey" alongside some sultry dancers.
